Subject[RFC v6 51/62] selftest/vm: pkey register should match shadow pkey
Date
expected_pkey_fault() is comparing the contents of pkey
register with 0. This may not be true all the time. There
could be bits set by default by the architecture
which can never be changed. Hence compare the value against
shadow pkey register, which is supposed to track the bits
accurately all throughout
